Beauty Products I Was Influenced to Buy on a 10 Person Girl’s Trip

On the second day of my hair not being washed, I realized I was in dire need of some beauty products.

For one, I needed dry shampoo because it wasn’t a regular day without washing. After a day of travel, I was dealing with some serious post-flight hair—like hair that won’t pump up volume-wise, even with maximum effort. When I checked my bag, I realized I forgot to bring a few (unfortunately, it’s mostly on brand for me), while I also discovered I’d bypassed a few of my other beauty go-tos due to last minute packing. At that moment, I accepted my fate: My hair and face routines would be incomplete—I was too many key players. That was until my saving grace entered; a voice asked, “Why don’t you just use mine?”

The voice was one of the girls I shared an Airbnb with for a long weekend in Nashville. Ten of us decided to travel together, despite being a hodgepodge of friends of friends who somehow inexplicably connected. Most of us were meeting for the first time and, more importantly, exchanging beauty secrets for the first time. Therefore, it was even more impressive that the sentiment of “Just use mine!” continued throughout the weekend, each person in our Airbnb swapping out their favorite volumizers and texturizing sprays and giving their best lip liner and glossy recommendations, and their holy grail and can’t-live-without products. We inadvertently became our own influential branding journey.

To keep the non-gatekeeper spirit going from that weekend, I rounded up the beauty products from the trip that made me add them to my cart and my wish list—because, frankly, there’s no influencer more effective at marketing than the one who lends. you wash their face after a long night out.

R&Co Skyline Dry Shampoo Egg

R+Co SKYLINE Dry Shampoo Powder

My savior loan of the weekend was this non-aerosol dry shampoo from R+Co. Similar to baby powder in terms of consistency and absorption, it effectively soaks excess oil at the root without leaving residue or overworking the scalp. The size is also ideal for travel.

Tan-Luxe The Gradual Illuminating Gradual Tan Lotion

It’s hard to plan your self-tanning schedule—and even more complicated if you want to keep it looking natural for an entire vacation. This easy-to-use gradual formula from Tan Luxe lets you maintain and develop a natural glow in just a few hours. In addition, it moisturizes the skin. Check, check, and? Cheque.

Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Glow Blush

As soon as I saw one of the girls on our trip sweep this cool baby pink blush on their cheeks, I knew I would have to have one of my own in my makeup arsenal. Now it’s a favorite in my rotation: It’s highly pigmented, has a radiant finish, and stays on all night.

Croc Hair Professional Masters Infrared Black Titanium Flat Iron 1″

Let’s give the person who packs the iron the appreciation they deserve. They could have chosen to save precious luggage room, but instead decided to save your life. The common flat iron of the weekend was this one by CROC with titanium plates that heat up quickly. It also uses infrared technology to penetrate deep into the hair, preventing your strands from becoming damaged and frizzy.

Ardell Wispies Strip Lashes

If you want to enhance an eye look, try these Ardell Wispie strip lashes. And if strips aren’t your thing, you totally can cut it in half (that’s what we did!) for a more subtle finish.

These ultra-soft, disposables are made to ensure skin is untouched by bacteria or build-up that can harbor on regular laundry room or hotel room towels. They also make your facial cleansing routine feel more luxurious.

IGK Beach Club Volume Texture Spray

This volumizing spray from IGK is ideal for those who want to achieve a casual, tousled wave. Pro tip I picked up this weekend: Apply this product by flipping your head upside down, spritzing all over and gently combing your fingers through your hair. Once you do, you’ll understand the hype.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

This lightweight cream-gel bronzer from Chanel delivers effortless and dewy bronze. It’s straightforward to use, especially if you don’t want a sharp, contoured look, but a more minimalistic glow. You can even use it on the eye as a natural shadow.

Dry Bar High Tops Self-Grip Rollers

A blowout with minimal effort is my type of blowout. And these vented rollers from Dry Bar work their bulky magic without the aid of clips or clamps. That’s right: They have a self-grip material that’s sturdy and comfortable. I saw one of the girls in our house using this without heat on her feathered bangs, and I was sell (I literally bought it from our shared bathroom).

Kosas Glow IV Vitamin Infused Skin Booster

This vitamin-infused skin enhancer from Kosas is a true trifecta: It’s radiant enough to be a highlighter, light enough to be a base coat, and provides coverage for an everyday skin tone. Consider it a glow-inducing skin essential that belongs in your next travel makeup kit—especially since it’s such a time saver. With just a few swipes, your application time will be down to seconds.

Beach Woven Microfiber Hair Towel

Hair towels are not your regular old bath towels, and I can’t believe I lived without one for so long. This woven towel from STRAAND drastically reduces drying time (again less time getting ready, and more time enjoying who you are get ready for) with its absorbent microfiber fabric. For curls, curls and tight textures, this towel will also help keep your natural pattern intact. Plus, it’s super lightweight.

Ever wondered what a grown-up version of Victoria’s Secret’s Vanilla Lace smelled like? Well, allow me to introduce you to this delicious gourmet fragrance from Maison Mataha Perfumes. It has notes of black sugar, vanilla and musk, a divine blend loved by #NisLuxury TikTok and Aysia, who shared a room and this find with me.

This French brand body oil has recently gone viral for good reason. It nourishes the skin in a velvety layer, leaving your body looking silky smooth while achieving a dry-down time that takes just minutes, so you don’t have to worry about transfer or greasy build-up. And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a subtle shimmer that gives an extra oomph after your typical moisturizing routine.

Patrick Ta Major Headlines Double-Take Crème & Powder Blush

Another blush makes a list; This time it’s this compact duo from Patrick Ta. Simply put, the cream and powder pigments are just beautiful. There is an impressive amount of playable colors while remaining buildable and blendable. It’s one of those “What are you wearing?” products, which is, ahem, how I came across its greatness.

Ghd Soft Curl – 1.25″ Curling Iron

Once again, with the common styling tool of the weekend, except this time it’s this curling iron from ghd. The warm-up time is phenomenal, and creates full, blown-out curls with its 1.25” barrel.

Fenty Hella Thick Volumizing Mascara

While this is not a shareable product, it is one that I have seen applied in real time next to me in the mirror. Not only was the formula incredibly creamy, but within a few swipes, its owner had thicker and bolder lashes and boasted that when she wore it, there was no clumping or fallout. Now with a tube of my own, I can attest that Fenty’s “Hella Thicc” lives up to its name as a volumizing and lengthening mascara.
